Today, my cell phone broke. It wouldn't even turn on. I went online to access my account so that I could order a new phone. I couldn't remember my password. The phone company had an option of "forgot my password". Upon clicking I get a message saying "Your password will be sent to your phone". FML

If you have a SIM card in your phone, try popping it into a friend's cellphone who is on the same network (in case there are any hardware restrictions built into the phone). Then go back and have the password sent to your phone, and your life should be unfucked.

#3 and #4, you aren't very bright. I can see it now "Today, somebody stole a notebook where I had written all my passwords. Now I cannot access my e-mail, my bank account has been hacked, someone charged $5000 to my credit cards via PayPal and my phone has been compromised. FML" And to the original poster, either swap your SIM card into another phone or go visit/call your provider, this situation is fairly simple.

That's why you should write those things down. You can probably call your provider, though, and they might be able to help.

Or they could switch the SIM card to another phone for a bit of time…

Not all phones have sim cards.

All phones have SIM cards. Or else they wouldnt work.

#93 all phones have SIM cards but not all phones have removable SIM cards

You should keep a list of all accounts you have and their passwords in a secure location. I do.

Haha, write important passwords down next time in a small notebook just for passwords

Phone company fail.

I'm calling bullshit on this one... why would a cell phone provider send your password to your phone? Wouldn't that allow anyone who stole your phone to then be able to access all your account information?!

Cell phone companies just fail at everything lately.

to those saying keep your passwords written down, epic fail. But this one is believable. Verizon texted me my password...

i agree with #8 i was gonna tell you just switch the sim cards.
